Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Six Races

Traditional term for the intelligent races which dominate this region of the galaxy. It appears independently in Aslan, K'kree and Vargr literature.

There is some disagreement as to the meaning of the term and the identity of the races involved. Most commentators agree that all of the six races must be Major Races; the candidates are Aslan, Droyne, Hivers, K'kree, Solomani, Vargr, Vilani, and Zhodani.

Various racially-based hypotheses have emerged, but none has gained ascendency.

Although widely dismissed it can be seen that by grouping Solomani, Vilani, and Zhodani as 'Humaniti' this makes Six Races. Of course leading proponents in this field amongst the Solomani, Vilani, and Zhodani dismiss this hypothesis.
